I recently was asked which one strain have I smoked the most often or keeping going back to. Before legalization in Illinois, I didn’t always know the name of the strains, but I have always been a big fan of Sour Diesel. I can always return to Sour Diesel, or Sour D, as a Work Sativa and have tried several samples from different Illinois cultivators. So when I noticed Grassroots’ Sour Diesel on the Verilife River North menu, I picked up a gram to review.
Sour Diesel is a sativa cross of Chemdawg and a Mexican sativa, possible Super Skunk, though the exact lineage is not known. This gram tested at 20.36% THCa, 0.42% THC, and 21.38% total cannabinoids. Leading terpenes included limonene, beta-myrcene, and beta-caryophyllene, and pinene.
The gram came as four small but dense light green buds and a tinier bud. The smell from the container hit with chemmy diesel, sour pine, citrus, skunk, and earthy hops.
The flavor delivered a more prolific profile. The inhale provided sour citrus, diesel, herbal skunk, and earth flavors, with an aftertaste of lemon. The exhale detailed more citrus, earthy pine, and gas with a citrus aftertaste.
The main reason I keep going back to Sour Diesel is because it’s a solid Work Sativa. The effects were strong with a fast onset that kicked off an energetic and stimulating mental boost. The cerebral high was creative, motivating, and mood elevating.
When medicated in proper doses, Sour Diesel allowed me to work for hours on pretty much any mental task. When dosing a little too much, the cerebral high can fade into thought wondering, but overall, the clearheaded cerebral buzz allowed me to be highly productive throughout the workday.
The body buzz was not overwhelming but instead a relaxation that kept me from becoming too physically tranquil while sitting in a chair for hours. Sour Diesel allowed me to perform mental and physical work and boosted my appetite. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, click here.
